romney, president obama both appearing with prominent republicans today . the "a-team" takes that up. what is the deal? the democrats need a little boost? stay with us. ♪ i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expt on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who mattermost to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. ♪ lou: well, joining me now, the "a-team", democratic strategist robert zimmerman, a veteran political consultant and adviser to former president clinton among others in that capacity. wall street journal opinion page editor. well, you know, as we look at these polls, absolutely not a doubt, it is, as they have said it would be for since the outset , of very tight election. >> a very close race. recede now coming down to the states in this election. ultimately we have talked
mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well, they both are certainly trying hard to do that. ted rowlands thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet.
will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
that people on both sides, obama campaign people and romney campaign people, and you see the carl rows piece and the numbers that rove quoted are national polling numbers. there's been a big discrepancy between the national numbers and state numbers. according to the national numbers, dead heat or romney slightly ahead, but the state by state breakdowns are showing that obama has the edge. stuart: i don't know how you can account for that. how can you have one candidate in the lead nationally, but behind in the key states like ohio? i don't know how that could work out, quite frankly, i don't get it. >> you're right, it can't work and that's why basically people are picking and choosing, are they going with the national or the state numbers. there's a the lot of reasons why it could be. for one thing the national pollsters have been around for a while, you know, they've got their methodology and the state polling is done by different methodologist, we'll find out november 6th who is right, but looks to me, karl rove does make a good point. when you've got ohio saying that we're going to have
% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hamilton county. it was blue four years ago. the state including cincinnati, 5
or governor romney to win right now without ohio? can either one win without ohio? >> both can. it's a tougher road for romney. romney, if he loses ohio probably has to put some combination of wisconsin and colorado or colorado, iowa and new hampshire, some combination of states. >> greta: it's possible but not so easy. it's not easy at all for romney. he has to thread the eye of the needle to do it. the president has other ways to get there if he loses ohio. >> greta: joe, thank you. coming up the obama administration, did they deliberately mislead americans about libya. that is the question. new poll asks questions. and just when you think you saw every campaign ad. a new campaign ad will make you wonder if there are any limits. that is just two minutes away. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. and always have. so does aarp, an organization serving the needs of americans 50 and over for generations. so it's no
of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first of all, we have the gallup daily tracking poll today that shows governor romney up by four points, 50-46. you have the rasmussen daily tracking poll that has governor romney up 50-47. the real clear politics average though is closer, that has 47.7 for governor and 46.8 for president obama, so, erin, real clear politics, you guys have this as a virtual dead heat? >> we do. in the national polls right now, it looks like mitt romney is ahead. he's poised to have a victory in the popular vote, if the election were held today. but if you look at the a lot of the state polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a vi
the both the obama and romney campaigns off occurs tomorrow. the president skipping and canceling campaign events tomorrow. returning to the white house here this morning to meet with his emergency response team in the white house situation room at to oversee emergency response to the storm. afterwards he have brooed reporters who asked him if he is worried about the storm disrupting the election next week? >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first-responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. i know, the election will take care of itself next week. >> governor romney also canceling campaign events in wisconsin, virginia and new hampshire out of sensitivity to the situation today and tom. -- tomorrow. liz and david. liz: thanks very much, peter. we'll look at ocean city, maryland. it is currently getting inundated with waves. ocean city, we're told the waves are crashing over the bulkhead on the western side of the city. high tide, 8:00 p.m. agai

on campaigns. both vice president biden and romney canceled campaigns in virginia beach this sunday. police and emergency crews are staying focused on the storm. >> first lady michelle obama canceled a campaign rally in new hampshire. that was scheduled for next week at the university of new hampshire campus in durham. the campus is closing because of this storm. let's get to the weather center. sandy currently sitting in the atlantic as it makes a slow crawl toward the east coast. meteorologist alexandra steele is back. if we're seeing it slow right now, alexandra, that can't be good once it hits land. >> it is moving north about 10 miles per hour, so it could be a lot slower. but the breadth and depth and scope of this thing, from tens of millions being impacted, from the airports, all the way to the power outages will be intense. so this is it. hurricane sandy, again, at the 8:00 a.m. advisory, aircraft reconnaissance found hurricane force winds, so it was upgraded. the entire frame has the swath of this and expansiveness. we're talking 450 miles out from the center we see tropical storm
. there are two other polls, both rasmussen and fox, that have romney up by two. it's margin of error. it's close, and it's going to come down to turn out the last undecided voters. i think why romney will win virginia is because he is the one that's going to reverse these sequestration cuts. they're going to devastate the military and cost us $200,000 jobs. the president has been a bystander and won't do that. he is the one with the plan to create jobs and we've got 23 million people that don't have jobs nationally and eight -- excuse me -- $16 trillion in debt. that's what virginians are concerned about and why there's been this momentum towards governor romney. the mishandling of the -- no transparency. 45 days after the fact. it's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may n
." >>> hurricane sandy has sidelined the presidential campaigns in some spots. both candidates have canceled events in critical swing states, and a more -- a surprise nonetheless, the des moines register endorsed mitt romney for president. the first time in 40 years the newspaper picked the republican nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does mying worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and
. it is -- the republicans are voting 95 percent in this poll for romney. they show about a 12. eight in both wanting him to be reelected and think it's important darman be elected. president allows supporters, his approval rating is back up to near 50. this is a slightly democratic sample. internally it looks strong, but this is before the storm. neil: all these samplings. a rolling out. >> as they came in. that matters. good news for both, but we don't know. neil: all about the passion and the base. i was thinking of the storm, thinking of the millions who are still without power. nothing approaching this magnitude. i do want to scare people again because will have an update later. but i will ask you whether it comes back to what pat said. you have to get that jazz phase-out. electricity disruptions, get out and vote. >> well, you know, it does seem like a lot of the indications point to of more energized of public and base. however, it is important to note that that pace, you know, hal energized are they in ohio? probably the only question that will ultimately matter. does look like the romney campaig
supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for change. >> both president obama and mitt romney are still campaigning their nonstop. here is why, the latest poll shows ohio pretty close. the president had made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the econo
-- that is revealed in poll after poll. a new "washington post" poll shows governor romney turning the economy around. with an 11-point lead as well, and to america trust moreo work with both parties in congress. so to give this election does turn on the economy, governor romney has, perhaps, an edge going into the election's final hours. we will take up the election, which way the swing states we will breaking key demographics with former bush chief of staff and campaign savant karl rove. retired navy admiral james lyons joins us he says the american people deserve to hear the truth about pin gauzy, and it is time for the president to come clean. he joins us live tonight. not only the president in question, the balance of power in congress to be decided. and that is the subject of tonight's start talks. joining me now, former deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush, kal rove. fox is a contributor. good to have you with us. you have said from the outset that this would be a tight race. did you really expected to be this tech??3 >> the -- tht is hard to say, but it will be tight. this will n
today, a day after governor romney went back on the trail. they both planned to hold virtually nonstop events between now and tuesday. the race still considered too close to call of cnn's latest poll shows president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michiga
is in beesburg by washington d.c. >> it shows gov. romney by the slimmest are margins, one-half of one percentage point. both campaigns trying to read the tea leaves to see which way this swing state will swing. and one hint comes in a pretty sheet that was compiled by the cook political report which compares absentee voting this year to absentee voting from four years ago. it finds turnout is down 13.69% in counties that obama carried in 2008 and it's also down in counties mccain carried in 2008 but only marginally. 1.12%. in real obama strong olds such as fairfax county, arlington county, where a lot of government workers live and work and a lot of consultants and people associated the government, it's down significantly n fairfax county down to 20.91%, arlington 19.98% and here in loudden county, .12%. this favors gov. romney. whether that translates into turnout on election day, no one can predict. it remains to be seen wench will know soon enough. thanks. some brave electrical workers are learning to charge their bodies to half a million votes to do their jobs better. sounds crazy but it's c
